I have recently come off blood pressure meds because of weight loss.(about 2 -3 weeks ago) I know my body is adjusting, but I get palpitations and/or that "flluttery feeling" quite often. Also, I can hear my heart beat in my ears. Is that the same thing as "ringing in the ears". It is very annoying. Comments, please.
